you have quotations around #ccc.

  color: #ccc;

This will do the trick

Thanks, such an oversight on my part!

You're welcome. I'm pretty new to this so I now how you feel.

I'm having this issue without the quotation marks around the color.

img[title="avatar"] {
  border-radius: 50%;

input[type="password"] {
  color: #ccc;
